Recently, I have been stumbling upon some amazingly cheap scrapbooking goodies. I haven't really bought much in the last year or two which makes sales of the older lines a perfect fit! Last week while milling around HomeSense looking for organizational supplies, I came upon the 2014 Teresa Collins line, "Save the Date" for only $4.99. Then a few days ago while searching for yet another storage container for dog supplies, I came upon another Teresa Collins line from 2014, "Daily Stories", also for $4.99. It felt so great to pick up supplies at such a cheap price.
Yesterday, I was feeling antsy and decided to take a boo down at my local scrapbooking store here in Sherwood Park. I hadn't been in for months. I was quite excited when the saleslady informed me that almost the entire store was 50% off. The sale excluded a few of the newer lines and adhesives. I picked through the store and picked up some lines from 2013 and 2014. This entire table of goodies cost me all of $124! (Sorry for the bad photos. It is dreary here and it still gets dark quite early.)
This is definitely the way to buy scrappy goodies. It may be older stuff but it is all new to me. I am going to try to pretty much continue this shopping trend by delaying buying the new releases. I'd rather buy them a year later at half the price. Sure there will be the odd thing that I love and screams out for me to buy it NOW, but for the most part.... I can wait! Shimelle collections can't wait. I'll be running into the city as soon as I see those gorgeous papers up on the store blog. haha
What are your plans for shopping? Are any of the new release peeks calling your name?
